What is a Nurse Practitioner?

A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered professional nurse who has completed further education and acquired advanced knowledge in clinical skills. NP's provide a wide range of health care services to people of all ages. In New York State, NP's have prescriptive authority and practice in collaboration with a physician. To ensure quality of care, NP's are certified by New York State and various national professional organizations.

Nurse Practitioners offer services such as 1) diagnosis and management of disease, 2) prevention of illness and 3) health maintenance. The NP takes health histories and performs physical exams. They also identify and treat many common problems (acute and chronic) through:

  • laboratory evaluation and X-rays,
  • prescribing and managing medications and other therapies,
  • health teaching and supportive counseling with an emphasis on prevention of illness and health maintenance, referral of patients to other health professionals as needed.

Nurse Practitioners have offered high quality and cost effective services, in partnership with their patients, for more than thirty years.
